Enjoying a unique location at the foot of the Black Mountains, this peaceful retreat offers direct access onto the mountains and is within walking distance of the small but traditional town of Talgarth.

This character-packed cottage for two is set in an excellent location for discovering the Brecon Beacons National Park, based just 1 mile from Talgarth. Discover the breathtaking views and majestic scenery as you scale the Black Mountains, or wander through the Pwll y Wrach Nature Reserve. Exhilarated by the local landscape, your accommodation is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day thanks to the crackling wood burner, or perhaps you would prefer to relax with a BBQ on your private terrace with a glass of wine in hand.

Forming the side wing of the owner’s home yet guaranteeing privacy, the cottage is brimming with tradition, having once served as an 18th-century farm building. High ceilings, character beams and a stone fireplace set the scene on chilly evenings, creating a delightful setting for sharing a bottle of something special by the wood burner. You’ll spot artwork created by the owner at every turn, especially when dining in style at the table. There’s a kitchen cleverly concealed against the rear wall, and you’ll have access to an outside terrace as well as shared use of the large garden. At bedtime, the double bedroom is cosy and inviting with an en-suite shower room.

Prepare a picnic and embark on an adventure, venturing through the ancient woodland and wild garlic of the nearby nature reserve to see the impressive waterfalls. Talgarth itself is a treasure trove of eateries, independent shops and a working mill, and the River Wye is first-rate for fishing and riverside walks. If you are feeling energetic, there are canoeing and kayaking opportunities, or perhaps you would like to try wild swimming at The Warren 8 miles away. Hay-on-Wye 8.5 miles away is liberally scattered with bookshops and tearooms – a great combination for literature lovers.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
